Hi,...I don't know about Swedish wedding traditions.

Could somebody tell me those adorable kids? What are they singing? Are they professional singers?
Thanks for any information...

The children were from Adolf Fredrik's Music School. Three years ago a children choir from Adolf Fredrik's Music School sang at the end of the concert for Victoria and Daniel a day before their wedding.
And another similarity: At Victoria's and Daniel's wedding Daniel's relatives played folk music at the stairs of the church when the guests, Victoria and Daniel came to the church, now the young musicians played folk music when Madeleine and Chris left the church.

In this photo back right you can see Giulia and Vivien Sommerlath who acted as brideschildren at Victoria's wedding. They are growing into beautiful young women.

Did we ever get a shot of Chris and Madeleine bowing/curtsying to Carl Gustaf before they processed out of the church?

I agree. They were stunning at Victoria's wedding and they are going to be very beautiful women!

I haven't seen any photos of that and it wasn't shown at the SVT live coverage.
We didn't see Chris bowing to the king when the king arrived with Madeleine to the chapel either.

Nice girls; Although nearly the same age, they are in fact aunt and niece, aren't they?

As far as I know they aren´t aunt and niece. Giulia is the granddaughter of Silvia´s brother Ralf and Vivien is the daughter of Silvia´s brother Jörg.

If there were I certainly hope they keep it to themselves what they may have figured out. Can a couple during their wedding ceremony not be allowed to say a few words to each other without it being published?

I haven't seen any information about how many people were on the route, the police estimated before the wedding that there could be over 200000 people (At Victoria's wedding there were over 500000 people). The route was shorter than at Victoria's wedding.
On TV the wedding saw 1,5 million people (Victoria's wedding about 3 million)

Some gossip from the wedding, from Svensk Damtidning

Cedric Notz, Chris' bestman, is very infatuated about Sweden. He is planning to return to Sweden already now in July. And at the society it is whispered, that it is because of the beautiful Andrea Engsäll (one of Victoria's best friends). They enjoyed each others company very much during the wedding festivities and were among the last to leave Drottningholm to Grand Hotel to continue the party after the wedding, and there was a lot of flirt between them.

Has anyone read the interview of Chris and Madeleine...which you can find on The Royal Correspondent?
Chris was quoted as saying: ‘We both were born and grew up in Europe. I am amused when I read what I called the “American”. Sure, my father was “American” and I have lived in the United States in the last decade but have never considered myself to be thoroughly American. Europe, and especially London, has for me always been home’ said Chris.
